A one week school, addressed to PhD students and young post-docs in scientific disciplines, focused on gravitational wave data analysis, is organized at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), in L'Aquila, by the GraWIToN European consortium.

GraWIToN is an Initial Training Network (ITN), funded by European Commission under FP7-Marie Curie Actions for four years, focused on the training of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the gravitational wave (GW) research field. This research field is in an impressive expansion period, thank to a 2nd generation of GW detector (GWDs) currently under installation and commissioning, promising the GW signal discovery in few years. The whole GraWIToN project with its schools, coherently with the spirit of the ITN Marie Curie Actions, will train young researchers both for a future in the academia and in the private industrial sector, in particularly for the R&D-based companies that are the suppliers of high-tech components and apparatuses.

The 2nd GraWIToN school is part of a set of schools scheduled in the GraWIToN project dedicated to different aspects of GW and astrophysics research: Optics, Simulation, High Power Lasers and Data Analysis. Outreach and project management methodologies are part of this school.

This Data Analysis School will be the first of two schools dedicated entirely to GW data analysis. In the first school we will concentrate on the analysis of data for Gravitational Transient Signals (Burst, CBC and EM Follow Up); instead, in the second one, we will focus on continuous signals (Pulsars, Stochastic Background).

The school starts on November 9, Monday and ends on November 13, Friday. 

Tuesday 10th of November will be devoted to institutional duties for the GraWIToN ESRs (Mid-Term Review meeting) and to other activities for the external students. One week, during which students can follow lectures by the experts in the GW community and become ready for their work path.  


Great importance will be given to ‘hands-on’ work and all the modules of the schools will be integrated with practical sessions.

This school will be recognized as an official course of the Doctorate School in Physics of the GSSI.

All the slides, lectures an exercises are available in the Moodle server of the GraWIToN project.
